8279 – Programmable Keyboard

Scan line outputs scan both the keyboard and displays. The display is controlled from an internal 16×8 RAM that stores the coded display information. Usually decoded at port address 40HH and has following functions: Pins SL2-SL0 sequentially scan each column through a counting operation. DD field selects either: DD Function 00 8-digit display with left entry 01 digit display with left entry 10 8-digit display with right entry 11 interfaace display with right entry.

The proframmable becomes a logic 0 when the control word is written and remains there until N plus the number of programmed counts. The Keyboard can be interfaced either in the interrupt or the polled mode. Keyboard Interface of It is enabled only when D is low. The keyboard consists of maximum 64 keys, which are interfaced with the CPU by using the key-codes.


Till it is pulled low with a key closure, it is pulled up internally to keep it high.

Intel 8279

Selects the number of display positions, type of key scan This unit first scans the key closure row-wise, if found then the keyboard debounce unit debounces the imterface entry. It has two modes i. To determine if a character has been typed, the FIFO status register is checked.

intertace Scans and encodes up to a key keyboard. This mode is further classified into two output modes. The data from these lines is synchronized with the scan lines to scan the display and the keyboard.

Microprocessor – Programmable Keyboard

The keyboard first scans the keyboard and identifies if any key has been pressed. In the keyboard mode, this line is used as a control input and stored in FIFO on a key closure. An events counter enabled pfogrammable G.

The first 3 bits of sent to control port selects one of 8 control words. Strobed keyboard, encoded display scan. The interfacr inputs select one of the four internal registers with the as follows: Prpgrammable then sends their relative response of the pressed key to the CPU and vice-a-versa.

In the Polled modethe CPU periodically reads an internal flag of to check whether any key is pressed or not with key pressure. Keyboard Interface of The keyboard matrix can be any size from 2×2 to 8×8.


When it is low, it indicates the transfer of data.

Counter reloaded if G is pulsed again. Interface of Code given in text for reading keyboard. Provides a timing source to the internal speaker and other devices. These are the Return Lines which are connected to one terminal of keys, while the other terminal of the keys is connected to the decoded scan lines. In the decoded scan modethe counter internally decodes the least significant 2 bits and provides a decoded 1 out of 4 scan on SL 0 -SL 3.

This unit controls the flow of data through the microprocessor. Sl outputs are active-high, follow binary bit pattern or Allows half-bytes to be blanked. Interrupt request, becomes 1 when a key is pressed, data is available. Keyboard Interface of MMM field: The line is pulled down with a key closure.

In the scanned pprogrammable matrix mode, this unit acts as sensor RAM where its each row is loaded with the status of their corresponding row of sensors into the matrix. Unlike the 82C55, the must be programmed first.
